AAER Inc., a Montreal-based wind turbine manufacturer, has entered into an agreement to sell 17 of its 1.5 MW wind turbines to Richmond, B.C.-based Katabatic Power Corp., a privately held wind farm developer with contracts to sell renewable energy in British Columbia.

Under the terms of the agreement, AAER will deliver 17 of its A1500-77 wind turbines during the last quarter of 2007 for use at Katabatic's Mount Hays wind project near Prince Rupert, B.C. AAER will maintain and service the turbines for the first six years.

In September 2006, Katabatic signed a 25-year electricity purchase agreement with BC Hydro, a Vancouver, B.C.-headquartered electric utility, for the output of the 25.5 MW Mount Hays wind farm. The project is expected to be completed in late 2007.
